Moho

The seismic discontinuity between the base of the Earth's crust and the top of the mantle. P waves passing through the Moho change their velocity by approximately one kilometer per second, with the higher velocity occurring in the mantle and the lower in the crust.

Moho

Also called the Mohorovicic discontinuity. The surface or discontinuity that separates the crust from the mantle. The Moho is at a depth of 5-10 km beneath the ocean floor and about 35 km below the continents (but down to 60 km below mountains). Named for Andrija Mohorovicic, a Croatian seismologist.

Moho

Moho. The boundary between the crust and the mantle in the earth. This is a depth where seismic waves change velocity and there is also a change in chemical composition. Also termed the Mohorovicic' discontinuity after the Croatian seismologist Andrija Mohorovicic' (1857-1936) who discovered it.

Moho

The Mohorovicic discontinuity, usually referred to as the Moho, is the boundary between the Earth's crust and the mantle. The Moho serves to separate both oceanic crust and continental crust from underlying mantle. The MohoroviÄ?ić discontinuity was first identified in 1909 by Andrija MohoroviÄ?ić, a Croatian seismologist, when he...
